Strong storms came though our area in the early morning hours this morning. It took quite awhile for the storms to move out and even then, I got caught in an unexpected hard rain. I ran my intervals this morning and covered 4 miles. It was a good run despite the mid-run shower. My paces were a little slower than I would like for each interval but this is the way to get them back to where I want them. I did have a farmer stop to ask if I was ok as the rain started coming down harder. It was a nice gesture and it made me appreciate our small community a little more.
